Hello guys, nice forum here. I am new to recording my bass lines on a pc. One friend tells me I need to buy an external midi unit to jack into and connect to my soundcard. Another friend says I just need to buy a 1/8 adaptor for my bass cable and jack into my soundcard mic input directly ...I cant seem to find a straight answer on the subject and I think the guy at the music store just wants to sell me some expensive hardware. What I really need is to talk to someone who records bass lines into their pc. I've got a nice Ibanez SR810 bass, a nice ampeg combo 210 amp with built in effects, and a new computer system and all I wanna do is record the noise comeing out of my amp into my computer. ...please help!
